WHAT'S THE BIG IDEA?

Good Pitch brings together documentary filmmakers with foundations, NGOs, campaigners, philanthropists, policymakers, brands and media around leading social and environmental issues - to forge coalitions and campaigns that are good for all these partners, good for the films and good for society.

Four filmmaking teams were handpicked for Good Pitch² Southeast Asia.

Over a year, these teams receive sustained mentorship and professional development. This includes two campaign development workshops, taking place right after project selection and again on the eve of the live event.

On the day, each team has just 7 minutes to perfectly pitch their film and associated outreach campaign to a roundtable of invited representatives and a theatre of up to 200 participants.

The moderator leads a feedback session with a room of
strategically selected participants.

All participants bring something unique:

expert knowledge, access to memberships and mailing lists, campaigning and lobbying expertise, connections to policymakers or corporate leaders, and new sources of funding.

Good Pitch is where strategy is conceived, coalitions are forged, deals struck and pacts made; where the unlikeliest of bedfellows are met and won over; where filmmakers and changemakers spit on their hands and shake: where change begins.

The Good Pitch² programme was developed in response to increasing demand from around the world and allowed BRITDOC to share their learning and build the capacity of regional organisations to host their own Good Pitch² events.

Good Pitch² events have taken place all around the globe, from Chicago to India, from Taipei to Argentina - and in May 2017, in Southeast Asia for the first time.
